My Stroke Guide is a self-management tool to support people who have been affected by stroke.
It has been designed by the Stroke Association, working closely with stroke survivors and family members who have been involved in every step of its development. This so that their needs are at the heart of what My Stroke Guide delivers.
The Stroke Association created My Stroke Guide to help ensure that stroke survivors are never alone in their recovery. It provides the practical tools to help stroke survivors understand stroke and deal with its effects alongside peer support to combat feelings of isolation. Most importantly, My Stroke Guide is available online, 24 hours a day.
My Stroke Guide’s key features are:
- Information about the effects of stroke and hints and tips about how to deal with them
- Peer-to-peer support, including an extensive video library and an online forum
- Goal-setting tools and graphs which reflect the individual’s progress
- Advice and signposting on the various issues people can face after stroke.
